Midcounties Co-operative rolls out soft plastic collection scheme
The Midcounties Co-operative has rolled out a soft plastic collection scheme in over 200 of its food stores.
This means that all of its Co-op branded packaging is now 100% widely recyclable.
The retailer made the move to help customers recycle problem materials such as bread bags, lids from ready meals, biscuit wrappers and wrappers from pet food, which most UK councils are unable or unlikely to collect.
Mike Pickering, co-operative social responsibility manager at The Midcounties Co-operative, said: “As a Society, we’re committed to making change and encouraging our members and customers to work us with us to build a better environment for our future, and recycling is a big part of that.
“We know that many of our customers and members want to do even more than they already are to help the planet, and the new recycling collection points are a great, convenient solution to help them with that.”
